Review

''The Land of Seonghye'', the second feature film by Jung Hyeongsuk traces the hard life of 29-year-old woman Seonghye for a significant portion of running time. After graduating from college, she worked as an intern in a large company. When the protest against sexual harassment was ignored, she reported to the Human Rights Commission and left the company. She currently is unable to work elsewhere and lives on part time jobs. Her father is in the hospital, and her mother working at the restaurant asks her for money. Her boyfriend preparing the civil service exam is incompetent and behaves tactlessly. Seonghye, who silently endures working in the difficult situation, makes a deep impression without particular devices to dramatize, because the film centers on the characters´ feeling in everyday, instead of developing dramatic events.

DIRECTOR
JUNG Hyungsuk
Jung Hyungsuk is a theater director, stage actor in several films and plays, and also film director. He debuted as a film director with The Night View of the Ocean in Yeosu (2016), and his second film The Land of Seonghye (2018) won the Grand Prize in Korean Competition at Jeonju International Film Festival 2018. He gazes at travelers’ relationship while journeying with optimism and good intentions in his debut work The Night View of the Ocean in Yeosu. In his second film The Land of Seonghye, the camera only follows everyday labor without embellishment, which informed us that his directing talent bloomed. He is a problematic director thinking of unexpected parole, even though he seemed to follow existing film grammar.
